As an experienced and respected Modesto chiropractor, Dr. Chester Graham has loved working with athletes from his community who participate in all types and all levels of sports. If you have an athlete in your home (including yourself!) then we strongly encourage you to get to know us here at Graham Chiropractic—whether you're currently dealing with a sports injury or are simply hoping to stay healthy all season (and pre-season) long!

Some specific types of sports injury seen by our chiropractor in Modesto include:

You may be surprised to know that many amateur and professional level sports teams have doctors of chiropractic on staff. We're not surprised why: formal and anecdotal evidence shows that chiropractic care can be incredibly beneficial for the active person! Here are a few reasons why:
